Annual family event at Charlton House & Gardens to feature artisan and food markets, kids’ activities including bouncy castles, music and dance performances, and family-friendly historical demonstrations
CHARLTON, ROYAL GREENWICH – Royal Greenwich Heritage Trust this week announced the schedule and vendors for its popular autumn celebration Horn Fair. The annual event takes place this Sunday 16th October from 11am to 4pm.
Horn Fair, which last year attracted more than a thousand locals from Charlton and Blackheath, will feature a dynamic range of family-friendly events, including a bouncy castle village, two artisan and food markets, sets from local musicians and dancers, and tours and a plant sale inside the House’s popular walled gardens.
A full schedule of the event’s vendors and activities, which also include drop-in Jacobean dancing workshops, can be found at greenwichheritage.org.
This year’s event marks the first time Horn Fair will be officially partnered with CC Events UK, a family-run events organisation led by Catherine and Chris Molnar. Their markets and entertainment with the House and other venues like the council’s Maryon-Wilson Park, Severndroog Castle, Danson House, and Lesnes Abbey are widely recognised throughout the borough.
